Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the co
ect answer to each of the questions.
As Christmas evolved in the United States, new customs were adopted and many old ones were reworked. The legend of Santa Claus, for example, had origins in Europe and was
ought by Dutch settlers to New York in the early 18th century. Traditionally, Santa Claus - from the Dutch Sinter Klaas - was depicted as a tall, dignified, religious figure riding a white horse through the air. Known as Saint Nicholas in Germany, he was usually accompanied by Black Peter, an elf who punished disobedient children. In North America he eventually developed into a fat, jolly old gentleman who had neither the religious attributes of Saint Nicholas nor the strict disciplinarian character of Black Peter.
Santa’s transformation began in 1823, when a New York newspaper published the poem A Visit from Saint Nicholas, which Clement Clark Moore had written to amuse his daughter. The poem introduced many Americans to the story of a kindly saint who flew over housetops in a reindeer-drawn sleigh. Portraits and drawings of Santa Claus by American illustrator Thomas Nast further strengthened the legend during the second half of the 19th century. Living at the North Pole and assisted by elves, the modern Santa produced and delivered toys to all good children. By the late 19th century he had become such a prominent figure of American folklore that in 1897, when Virginia O’Hanlon wrote to the New York Sun newspaper asking if Santa was real, she received a direct answer: “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus”.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the co
ect answer to each of the questions.
WHY SO MANY CHILDREN?
   The rapid population growth in less developed countries is a result of high birth rates. Women in these countries have many children on average. Why do they have such large families, when feeding and caring for them can be a problem? The answer may often be that they have no choice. Many factors make it difficult for women to limit the size of their families.
   Economics undoubtedly plays an important role. In poor countries, a large family is necessary for economic survival. More children mean more hands for work. They also mean someone to take care of the parents in old age. In industrialized countries, on the other hand, children do not increase family income. Instead, they are an expense. Furthermore, people in these countries usually do not depend on their children in their old age.
However, economics cannot entirely explain birth rates. Saudi Arabia, for example, has one of the highest per-capita incomes in the world, but it also has a very high birth rate (7.0). Mexico and Indonesia also do not follow the general rule. Though they are poor countries, they have reduced their population growth by 53 percent and 25 percent in recent years.
   Clearly, other factors are involved. These factors may relate to the economic situation, but not necessarily. Population experts now believe that the most important of these factors is the condition of women. A high birth rate almost always goes together with lack of education and low status for women.
   This would explain the high birth rate of Saudi Arabia. Traditional Arab culture gives women little education or independence and few possibilities outside the home. It also explains the decline in birth rates in Mexico, Thailand, and Indonesia. Their governments took measures to improve education for women and opportunities for them outside the home. Another key factor in the birth rate is the availability of birth control. Women may want to limit their families, but have no way to do so. In Ireland, for example, birth control is illegal. Not surprisingly, Ireland has the highest birth rate in Europe. Where governments have made birth control easily available, on the other hand, birth rates have gone down. This is the case in Singapore, Sri Lanka, and India, as well as in Indonesia, Thailand, and Mexico. In these countries women have also been provided with health care and help in planning their families.
   Yet another factor to influence birth rate is infant mortality. (Infant mortality is the percentage of babies who die in their first year.) In industrialized countries infant mortality is around 1.5 percent. In less developed countries, however, it can be 20 percent or more. Fearing the loss of some children, women are encouraged to have more.
   Thus, an effective program to reduce population growth must work in many areas. But above all it must be aimed at women and their needs. Only then does it have any chance of success.
Question 43. This passage is about____________.
  A. women in less developed countries  B. how economics can influence the birth rate
  C. population growth    D. the main factors that influence the birth rate
Question 44. In poor countries, ____________.

  A. are an expense for the family

B. help to care for their parents in old age
  C. do not usually depend on their parents  
D. are necessary for economic survival
Question 46. According to the passage, Saudi Arabia is a____________.
  A. rich country with a low birth rate  B. poor country with a high birth rate
  C. poor country with a low birth rate  D. rich country with a high birth rate
Question 47. We can infer from this passage that women generally prefer to____________.
  A. work at home     B. have no children  
C. have smaller families    D. have large families

  A. birth control is not easily available  B. birth control is easily available
  C. many women work outside the home  D. infant mortality is high
Question 49. Which is NOT a factor that influences the birth rate?
  A. Economics   B. Culture   C. Infant mortality   D. Children’s role
Question 50. According to the passage, what do Mexico, Thailand, and Indonesia have in common?
  A. They have high per-capita incomes and high birth rates.  
B. Birth control is illegal.
  C. Their governments give more advantages to women.   
D. They do not fear the loss of children.
